Westbrook reacts to brother’s tweet about Thunder coach


(Memphis, TN) — The Thunder buzz of the day here in Tennessee surrounded a tweet during Thursday night’s OT loss to Memphis when Ray Westbrook, Russell’s brother tweeted the Thunder needs a new head coach right now.

The tweet was deleted shortly after it was posted, but it made it’s mark with many local and national media members reading it.

So Friday, when the Thunder practiced inside the FedEx Forum, it came time to talk to the players and, starting with Russell Westbrook, they reacted strongly to the tweet, the implication of the post and how the team is feeling now trailing 2-1 to Memphis in the NBA Playoffs.
